KS Services is excited to host fall groups for children, teens, and adults starting mid-September. Groups provide a unique opportunity to engage in connection with peers who are typically experiencing similar life stages and stressors. While each group is different depending on overall group goals, group therapy provides opportunity for normalization, feelings of reduced isolation, and support.
Check out the three groups currently being offered at KS Services listed below:
Emotional Literacy for students in 3rd - 5th grade
In this group students will engage in activities to enhance their ability to effectively identify, regulate, and communicate about their emotions. Emotional literacy skills will be taught through the use of therapeutic art, games, and play. Topics covered in the group will include understanding and naming complex emotions, identifying effective coping strategies, and improving social skills to foster connection.
The group will meet on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm starting Wednesday, September 20th. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register.
High School Process Group for students in 9th - 12th grade
The KS Services weekly high school process group is specifically designed to be a small group of up to eight students looking to engage in a safe, non- judgemental space for support and connection. Group sessions are tailored to address specific issues raised by group members. Common themes include depression/anxiety, academic and social pressures, relationship conflicts, family dynamics, and life paths/transitions. In a process group, members will be asked to share their own concerns and experiences while being open to receiving feedback from other group members. The counselor will facilitate the conversation and provide psychoeducation.
The group will meet Thursdays from 6:30-8:00 pm starting Thursday, September 21st. Please reach out to email@example.com for more information and to register.
Community Connect: A virtual group for parents of children and teens with ADHD
Community Connect is an ongoing virtual group for parents of children and teens with ADHD. Each group session provides a space for parents of children and teens with ADHD to receive support, connection, resources and psychoeducation. While there is no set agenda for this group, common themes include strategies for executive functioning (time management, organization, motivation) as well as strategies for supporting emotional regulation.
Community Connect meets virtually the first Friday of each month from 12:00-1:00 pm. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register.
